Environmental Health and Practice

Environmental health practitioners (EHP) are able to make a real difference to public health and wellbeing through effectively managing elements in the natural and built environment. This means there is increasing demand for qualified professionals across the public and private sectors in the UK and worldwide. But in order to work as an EHP, practitioners are required to pass an accredited undergraduate or Masters degree in Environmental Health as well as completing three professional assessments. As the only Integrated Masters in Environmental Health and Practice in the UK, this four-year course will equip you with the knowledge, skills and experience to go straight into a career in this rewarding field. You will study earth sciences, the environment, public health, housing and sector legislation. You will examine how best to manage varied situations using different systems and approaches. And you will develop confidence and skills applying these on scenarios, simulations and placements. On graduation, all you need is to pass a professional interview with the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) in order to become a registered EHP.
